Exam results - 2017

In summer 2017 Post 16 were celebrating another set of excellent exam results.

Students achieved an all-time high of 25 A* grades and almost one in three A level grades was awarded either an A or A*. These grades are especially impressive in light of national changes which have seen the removal of AS results in many subjects.

We are equally delighted with our vocational results where a staggering 93% of entries were awarded either a Distinction or Distinction*. These results are a reflection of the hard work and determination of students and the dedication of Post 16 teaching and support staff at the academy.

This cohort of students have been a special year group and a talented group of young people so it is fitting to see them going off to study a real range of courses. Sarah Gornall will be attending dance school and Grace Lilley has gained a place at the highly prestigious RADA. Other courses to be studied include: architecture, product design, drama and theatre, neuroscience, crime and investigation, and journalism as well as the more traditional subjects. Alongside those students going to university, it is pleasing that in such a competitive labour market, several students have gained employment and apprenticeships.

Students following vocational courses also achieved impressive results with the following gaining exceptionally high grades in their chosen courses: Courtney Cairnes, Chantelle Evans, Eleanor Greenslade, Sara Hussain, Aliya Ishaq, Fatima Khadija, Maria Khan, Henna Maqsood, Caitlin Roberts, Iram Uddin, Collen Zuwa, Amer Hussain, Amar Iqbal, Hamza Shabir, Anam Rahman, Mahmoon Ashfaq and Sam Hunt.
